Agni-II Plus Missile Test Fails In Orissa

India test-fired an upgraded version of the Agni-II nuclear-capable intermediate range ballistic missile off the Orissa coast. The test was declared a failure.

The latest version of the "Agni" series missile is described as a two-stage, solid propellant rail and road mobile missile.

Scientists at the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) said "the modified version of Agni-II will have better accuracy and range."

While the present Agni-II missile has a strike range of 2000 km and Agni-III can target a distance up to 3500 km, the strategic new missile, Agni-II plus or premier would bridge the gap between Agni-II and Agni-III, a defence source said.
